This is very similar to my experience with PCOS, too. (Persian women are just as obsessed with facial hair.) I’ve been waxing since I was 12, but I only started medication (OMG, those side-effects!!) a few years ago. What a life changer it’s been. I somehow missed the memo that I have difficulty losing weight because of PCOS, but I need to remember to not use that as an excuse… anyway, thanks for sharing your story!
